Name: Christine D'Epiro Abbott
Statement: In "Kitchen View" and my current body of work, the collage begin as an observational drawing from my home's interior. Rather than stage a grouping of objects like a traditional still life, the imagery starts with the spontaneous composition of belongings as they are found. I then develop a richly saturated, layered and imaginative collage that still maintains some of the original drawing and includes local color. After an experience cleaning another person's residence for employment and now currently spending much more time at home caring for a toddler, these spaces occupy a unique and significant place in my visual memory bank. At home, I am engaged in a constant state of transformation, either through the humble daily activity of striving to maintain order out of entropy or imagining much more dramatic aesthetic changes. I'm certain this is a fairly common experience. With "Kitchen View," I choose to celebrate the potential of a typical residential kitchen by sharing an inventive vision of my own.
